I needed a touch of countryside today, no I have not returned to New Zealand

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I’ve been glued to my computer screen all day and was feeling a need for a bit of green.THis was taken the last day in New Zealand with Robb Young.


RObb is working hard on the Stella Contemporary Fashion Awards  which take place next weekend in Lucern. Undercover, Giles, David Szeto, Christian Wijnants, Charles Anastase and Nuit Blanche are competing for a 100,000 euros Swiss Textile Award.  I am looking forward to attending.

Back to my computer,
